My colleague Mark Marcus, asked me to join his “Blog it Forward” challenge. This is a great way to get me exposure to the blogging process and community.
I am part of an extraordinary team within the Chief Customer Office where our primary goal is to make our customers happy.
Here are the questions he asked me to answer.
What was your dream job as a kid?
I always thought I wanted a job where I would be working outside. I actually looked into become a heavy equipment operator where I would spend my days running large machinery moving big mounds of dirt. Outside in the fresh air, under the sun and not a care in the world. But I always loved math classes and after my first statistical course in college I realized that moving dirt for a living my not be the best career choice. Don’t get me wrong, I tease my wife that I want to buy a backhoe to just dig holes in the backyard and then just fill them up.
What was your favorite place in the world?
My favorite place in the world would be Hawaii. I spent 10 days there when I was younger and still have vivid memories of the landscapes and scenery. My second favorite place would be on my boat and on a body of water fishing anywhere in the United States.
What was the most fun project you ever participated in and why?
This is a tough one. I have worked on so many projects with so many great people it’s tough to pick just one that stands out. But I was involved in a project prior to coming to SAP where the team was responsible for transitioning a paper time and material tracking process to a computer based program. One of the most rewarding tasks was teaching individuals that have never touch a computer to enter time and order material for ongoing construction projects. It was challenging but also extremely rewarding.
